Grammys 2013: Ne-Yo to be a new judge on 'The X Factor'?
With Britney Spears and L.A. Reid done with "The X Factor," the big question is who will fill their shoes. Judging by his response to Ryan Seacrest at the 55th Grammy Awards, Ne-Yo might be one of the new judges on the show.
"It's conversation. Nothing is set in stone right yet. It's talks," he told Seacrest on the red carpet after much hedging.
That's a lot less than what he said the last time "The X Factor" judging opportunity was brought up. During a January interview with That Grape Juice, Ne-Yo confirmed that he's been courted for the role.
"There've been a few conversations, but nothing is set in stone," he said. "There's been a few lunches and dinners (laughs) but that's all I can say right now." »

'Once Upon a Time' Season 2 shows no sophomore slump
"Once Upon a Time" was one of my favorite new shows of the fall of 2011. Fairytales are a fertile ground from which to mine stories and I loved the way "Ouat" combined characters from different tales in what the creators termed "mash-ups."
Furthermore, I found myself so glad to see a show on TV that a family could enjoy together. So many shows nowadays are either for children or for adults -- very few are for both. Sure, adults can watch children's shows, but they aren't exactly drama-filled fare. And certainly children should not be enjoying "Mad Men" or "Homeland" with their parents.
Along came "Ouat," which offered exciting drama and compelling characters that was also completely family-friendly TV. It was a big hit in my house.
However, I was a bit worried when the first season ended with the curse being broken. A big storyline like that being resolved »
'The Real Housewives of Atlanta' Recap: Kenya's Health Scare
Porsha tries on different gowns for Cordell's 40th birthday. Since she doesn't have a mind of her own, she selects dresses that Cordell would want to see her in, as opposed to what she likes. She even refers to herself as Cordell's "doll." So, that happened.
Real Housewives Roundup: Divorce, Sobriety, Lawsuits and Beyonce >>>
Phaedra hangs out at Kandi's place for some sweet tea (hello, Lipton ad) and some Kenya gossip. Phaedra is flattered that Kenya tried to dress like her at NeNe's Shoedazzle event in her barely there mesh dress. Insert multiple donkey references here, and Phaedra's self-involved delusions come full circle.
Box Office: Melissa McCarthy Gets Last Laugh As Identity Thief Steals the Weekend
Identity Thief, which stars Jason Bateman as the victim of McCarthy's (yep) identity thief, opened in first place by a landslide, earning $36.6 million over the weekend despite a severe winter storm that caused several movie theaters in the Northeast to close temporarily, Box Office Mojo reports.

'The Walking Dead's' Steve Yeun: Creator Robert Kirkman 'should be dead' or at least a zombie
When Steven Yeun's character, Glenn Rhee, first appeared on "The Walking Dead," he was a smart-aleck pizza deliveryman who used his encyclopedic knowledge of Atlanta to save his comrades from hungry zombies. Not that it earned him much respect.
As the AMC hit drama's third season resumes Sunday, Feb. 10, Glenn has evolved from a flaky kid into a mental and physical warrior, thanks to the love of a good woman and the knowledge that he's capable of more than scrambling through sewers.
"The second season was Glenn realizing what his true purpose was and what it means to survive in that type of situation," Yeun tells Zap2it of the "Dead" zombie apocalypse scenario. "It's mainly to live for another person, or other people. And as Steven, the actor, I found more understanding of what my purpose was and how to play this character. The third season is both of us actualizing it. »
Grammy Awards 2013: Carrie Underwood keeps on being 'Blown Away'
The music superstar has earned five of the honors since winning the fourth season of "American Idol," and she says she's thrilled to be in the running again for her most recent CD's title cut, nominated for best country solo performance and best country song. She'll also perform when CBS televises the 55th Annual Grammy Awards from Los Angeles' Staples Center on Sunday, Feb. 10.
"It's the Grammys!," the friendly Underwood tells Zap2it. "Those are something you learn about when you're a kid, before you even realize exactly what they are. Growing up watching them and seeing all kinds of music coming together for one night to celebrate a great year, it's a cool thing to be a part of now. It's just fun to be there and to be a part of history. »
'The Walking Dead' Recap: Rick and Governor Hurdle to Crazy Town
After a several week break, we were all hoping for The Walking Dead to deliver some good old-fashioned zombie action to satisfy our craving. "The Suicide King" serves up a heaping dish of crazy. There is some crazy, wild shoot-out action to kick things off and even a healthy dose of crazy zombie gore throughout, but for the most part, it's just a lot of people going crazy. »
'Kardashians' Roundup: Kim Heads to Nigeria, Kourtney's Boyfriend Plans to Buy Another Night Club

News, event host and singer Darey Art Alade confirmed that the Keeping Up with the Kardashians star will be part of the February 17 event at the Convention Centre of the Eko Hotel and Suites in Lagos.
William H. Macy a 'Shameless' Jack White fan and 'Shameless'-ly bad carpenter
Zap2it: What bands do you like?
William H. Macy: In the classic age of rock 'n' roll, I was everything from the Band to Zeppelin -- all of it. I was very eclectic. I liked it all, and some weird stuff. And then I didn't listen to a lot of music, all through disco and that stuff, and then I'm relatively out of it. And then I went through a period when I listened to only children's music. That was about six years, or four years.
Zap2it: At the beginning of fatherhood, obviously.
William H. Macy: No, I never had any kids. I just got into children's music. No, I'm kidding. So what am I listening to now? My standbys: Randy Newman, greatest thing that ever happened; Paul Simon, the other greatest thing that ever happened. Love Paul McCartney, so sue me. Other stuff: Wilco I like. »

SNL mocks Super Bowl blackout in opening sketch
For the opening sketch during the Feb. 9 episode of "Saturday Night Live," the late-night comedy show took the opportunity to mock the Super Bowl power outage, which delayed the big game last weekend for over a half hour.
The "SNL" regulars were skewering the NFL broadcasters, who had to vamp for a pretty long time during the blackout. There wasn't much to discuss and there were only so many times they could throw to commercial.
If that had actually happened during the real broadcast, that would have been amazing. But we aren't sure this sketch has anything on the funny tweets happening during the actual blackout. »
Idology: Nicki Minaj Rules, Male Contestants Act the Fool During Season 12 Hollywood Week
Say what you want about Nicki Minaj’s opinion — and sure, sometimes it’s as crazy as her wigs — but unlike so many ineffective American Idol judges of yore, there’s never any doubt about where she stands.
Nicki’s bracing honesty was never more appreciated than during the opening half of Season 12 Hollywood Week, when too many guy contestants milked their sob stories, lobbied for sympathy votes or acted like entitled buffoons in their quest to keep alive the show’s streak of five straight male winners.
On this week’s Idology, my cohost Melinda Doolittle and I discuss »

‘SNL’ Ratings Slip With Host Justin Bieber
With Saturday Night Live airing way past bedtime for most of Justin Bieber constituency, the NBC late-night sketch show did not get a boost from the young pop star’s stint as host and musical guest last night. SNL averaged a 4.9/12 in the metered-market households, down 4% from the show’s most recent original hosted by Adam Levine. In the 25 markets with Local People Meters, last night’s Saturday Night Live drew a 2.7/12 share in adults 18-49, also down 4%. »

Video: The Walking Dead's David Morrissey on the Governor's Quest for Revenge
No more Mr. Nice Governor.
On Sunday's midseason premiere of The Walking Dead (9/8c, AMC), the Governor (David Morrissey) will begin to more closely resemble the arch villain from the graphic novels that inspired the series. And why wouldn't he? After all, the Governor's town has been attacked and Michonne (Danai Gurira) has both killed his zombie daughter and taken out his eye with a shard of glass.

'Saturday Night Live': Justin Bieber sends Hillary Clinton racy pictures and more highlights
We have to admit -- we thought since Justin Bieber seems to have a pretty great sense of humor about himself that his "Saturday Night Live" appearance would be funny. Alas, he was not handed the best stuff to work with.
However, there were a few gems, so we've got video highlights for you.
Bieber's monologue, celebrating Valetine's Day and Black History Month, was pretty funny, as was his Valentine's Day message (the Hillary Clinton thing was very startling and therefore very funny). "SNL" also did a very commercial for Bravo shows.
Weekend Update had a few good jokes and a funny bit with Kenan Thompson as the Only Black Guy in Every Commercial. The "Grease" send-up made us laugh. The protective older brother sketch didn't really tickle our funny bone -- until Taran Killam got so into it that Bieber started giggling. It always makes us laugh when one »
Justin Bieber Hosts SNL; Watch the Unaired Non-Bieber Sketch Instead
Last night’s 'SNL' host was Justin .. . oh, how I wish I could say Timberlake, but No. It was Bieber, set loose among squealing audience members and a flood of predictable Bieber jokes. He wasn’t much as a comic, but he did go along wih a lot of Bieber-Playing-a-Dumb-Guy sketches. None of them mentioned the unfortunate Instagram he had posted the day before of himself with SNL's all-powerful Lorne Michaels, which Bieber spelled Lauren. (Some generous people on Twitter blamed Autocorrect; maybe.) The best Bieber joke was about his image, as his head of security (Jason Sudeikis) hired a dozen unlikely body doubles who tried to convince Bieber they knew all his moves. That video is not online (at least not yet) so take a look at a non-Bieber sketch from dress rehearsal that didn't make it to air. You can see why there was no »

'The Walking Dead' Exclusive Interview: Lauren Cohan on What's Next For Maggie and Glenn
The Walking Dead is finally back to complete its season 3 run. In the winter finale, a battle was waged by the prison group against Woodbury in order to rescue Maggie and Glenn. The couple escaped in the melee, but the ramifications of their time in Woodbury will stay with them.
Lauren Cohan spoke to BuddyTV about what's coming up for Maggie and Glenn, as well as, for the group on what she calls, "a family drama with a very interesting back drop."
Justin Bieber Hosts Saturday Night Live: What Were the Best and Worst Sketches?
In that spirit, the good news for Bieber is that he fared funnier than fellow pop star Adam Levine, who hosted SNL two weeks ago. Indeed, Bieber proved a self-deprecating headliner, gamely allowing himself to be the butt of jokes about looking like he’s 11, still possessing his baby teeth and resembling talk-show maven Ellen DeGeneres (among other lesbians).
The bad news? The show’s ever-inconsistent writing staff trotted »
